Sneak Peek and Giveaway!

Hi bloggers!  As promised, a sneak peek for tomorrows shows and leave me a comment for a chance to win this one!  I will announce the winner on Monday's blog post.  This card is one of the cards that I demoed at The Papeterie last week in Aberdeen.  So it isn't a complete sneak peek to those of you that attended the demo, but it is one of my favourite cards and techniques.  I am not going to be demoing this one on Sunday, but you can see it demoed on the charity DVD available through The Papeterie if you would like to order one (01224 802337).  Just a quick note about the DVD, though, it was a static camera that was set up for the day, not a professionally filmed DVD.  Please do not order it expecting to have various camera angles and slick editing.  Please order it on the basis of the money is going to a great charity and you can see what we did on the day!
This card show cases a lovely double resist technique.  I almost forget about stamping techniques that I learned ages ago since I use die cuts for most of my card making, but every once in a while, they come together nicely.  I think this card is the perfect example of that.  I started by stamping just the flower head from the stamp in the Floral Thank You set by Justrite.  It can be easily nipped off from the stem as it isn't actually touching in the design (then easily put back in place to stamp it as a whole flower, stem and all!)  I stamped it with a clear perfect medium pad and added four or five across my coconut white card randomly positioned.  I heat embossed them with clear powder.  Next I rubbed a Peacock Feather Distress ink across it so the entire page was coloured, but the flowers  resisted the colour since they were clear embossed.  The next step is very important, you must dry it well.  First I dry the inked area with a heat tool, then I rub my anti static pad over it several times.  This will take the last of the moisture from it.  Using the Secret Garden background stamp by JustRite (and this one you will be seeing ALOT of it used on cards on my blog because it is gorgeous!), I inked it with a Clear Perfect Medium pad and stamped it over the previously stamped and inked piece.  I heat embossed it with clear powder as well.  Using a black Soot Distress ink pad, I rubbed it all over my background until all the exposed areas (non embossed) are well covered with ink.  I will tell you that you will think it looks a right mess at this point, but don't turn back!  Simply use a damp piece of kitchen roll and wipe away all the ink that is on the embossed areas.  You will be left with a beautiful piece that looks just like the two forked strips on my card.  I cut my piece into two strips and matted it with black card after cutting forks in the ends.  I cut one of the pieces so I was able to tape it to the card to look like it was considerably longer than it was.  I used the bracket border to hide the gap.  I cut the border using a decorative edge, the lattice insert then the swirly insert then the lattice insert again, then a cutting edge.  I matted it on black card that I used the cutting edges only on.  I glued it into place across my card.  Using a piece of Zircon green seam binding, I made a rolled flower from it following the tutorial at the top of my blog.  I made a second one a bit smaller and seated them both on some tulle at the side of the border.  I added some of the leaves from the Delicate Aster die set by Heartfelt Creations.  I stamped my sentiment in the lower corner of the card in black Archival ink and matted it with black then a double white pierced layer.  I added pearls on t the border and three small white pearls to the upper corner to complete the card.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.
A quick note, they have cancelled the 5pm show for tomorrow so I will only be on the ToolShed show from 12 to 2pm.  I have a lovely demo first up that I am quite excited to show you!   I have just edited this to tell you that I have a show on the 23rd  live from CHA in Las Vegas.  It is 11am their time, so it should be 7pm UK time.  Then, that's it for me until Sept. LOL   All for now, Sue x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a beautiful beautiful gift for today - The flowered pieces will definitely be not only in my 'must do' file but on my table because although you say we will have a beautiful finish like yours I know that I for one will have to try try and try again and still it won't finish looking anywhere near as wonderful as yours. But I will not give up whatever it looks like. The colour scheme is just beautiful and the format is simple but makes such a statement what more can I say only that WHAT ARE C&C PLAYING AT it's forever since you were on and now they cut a show - I know I may not be able to catch one tomorrow because of only laptop etc but still as happy2craft and I'm sure many others are saying it's a long time to September.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. What a gorgeous card. I love it! I will be trying this for sure becauseit looks stunning. What a shame you are only doing one show tomorrow. Maybe we don't know the reasons but I really do wonder what C & C are doing, they seem to think it is ok to cut guests spots at the last minute. I think it is very rude. So sorry they have messed you about Sue. I will be watching the show you do have though. I hope it goes well and you enjoy it. Safe journey. Take care

Margaret said...

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Sorry I have not commented for a few days. We went on holiday (in this country.) But I could not get any wifi signal. I am not at all technically minded so i did not know how to sort it out !! Your card for today certainly has a big WOW factor. The techniques you have used are great, the colours are beautiful and the card is just fabulous !! I recently bought the peacock feathers ink pad. It is such a beautiful colour. The secret garden background stamp is fairly high up on my wish list. I have been admiring it for quite some time now. Your flowers are beautiful. I must have a go at your blog tutorial. (I usually use my flower dies.) I can't wait to see you on tv tomorrow. Take care Sue lots of love Tres x x x

What a lovely card and the colour is spectacularly gorgeous and how kind to offer us the chance to win this card. Thank you.

I think if everyone on the blog emailed in during your Tool Shed shows today to say to C & C how annoyed we are that they have cut your show and that you should be given more shows they would have to listen come on Wilsonettes what are we waiting for? Let's go!! :)

Hi Heather

I'm with you, I shall be emailing in the toolshed show tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if all the complaints get a mention. I bet we won't get put in the cup of chance. Are they stupid, don't they realize how much income Sue brings to C&C and more to the point how much we enjoy seeing her and her demo's.

Jess Watson said...

Moring Sue, beautiful card, love the double embossing mine wouldn't turn out as good as yours, but might give it a go! I totally agree with everyone else about C&C cancelling your show they must be mad! Will be recording your show to watch over and over again. Take care, Jess xx

Hi Sue,

Hello Sue, WOW this is a stunner, love the teal and think I must get the secret garden background stamp. Will be giving the double resist technique a try, it looks fabulous. Will be watching tool shed, agree with other comments about the cancelled show.
Have a great day everyone.

Hello Sue

A stunning card - thank you - will have to give this one a go.

I've never heard of highland cows being mistaken for buffalos before but I have heard them being referred to as 'hairy cows'.

I will be watching on Sunday. Have a good show.

Hi Sue, This card is georgeous love the colour. Think I need to see the technique done though. Looking forward to the shows.

As your card says Sue "Miss You"
that is what we will all do until September. Haven't tried this technique before but will have a go.
Look forward to tomorrow's show and will tape it - if there is enough space.
God bless

Hi Sue, yet another stunner, the teal colour is just so gorgeous. I will be watching the tool shed tomorrow and then again in the 23rd but I do so wish they would give you more airtime rather than less.

Have a great weekend

Hello Sue
This is just such a lovely card and I just love the colours you have used. I can't wait to try the stamping technique although I am sure mine will not look as great as yours!!!

Lesley sinclair said...

Hi sue all I can say is wow that background technique is amazing and is one i will definitely be trying,I might just NEED to get the secret garden stamp! Lol I'm so looking forward to your show tomorrow and cannot believe they cancelled your show and replaced it with Hunkydory!!! C&c need to get a grip and stop cancelling the best shows,yours and Julia's, at the last moment. Love Lesley x

Christine Hussey said...

WOW, what a stunning card Sue and my favourite colour. Love the techniques you have used and the background is beautiful. Hugs Christine H xx

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT CARD SUE. What great techniques you have used here and what a wonderful result. I am so looking forward to your show tomorrow and can't believe your 5pm one has been cancelled. Why - we have so many Hunkydory shows and hardly any of yours!! C&C must realise how popular you are judging from the emails you receive whenever you are on. Good that we can watch the Vegas show on 24th though and can't believe we won't see you again until September!!!! So pleased I have ordered by dvd from Papatiere and can't wait for it to come now. Love YvonneMayxx

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue,
That a beautiful card. The bookmarks coming down in the duck egg, black and white/ivory reminds me of very expensive wall paper. The colours look beautiful together and with the tinge of black behind as a matte is just nice and not too overpowering. Why oh why are we being denied the pleasure of your company on television. The withdrawal symptoms are very hard to control.
Hope your having a lovely day,
love and crafty hugs
Norah

Hello Sue
Such a gorgeous card and my favourite colours, too! Thank you for remininding me of this technique and will be off to try again when the weather cools down a bit!!
Thank you for your inspiration and look forward to seeing you on the show tomorrow. So sad we will only see you for one show.

Love Lesley S

Hello Sue. A really striking card, with great techniques. Looking forward to your show. Xx

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue

What a fantastic technique this is. I to thought this was paper from your stash. I'd really like to have a sneaky peek at your stash. Great that is was just stamps and embossing medium. The peacock feathers looks a fantastic colour. Must add stamps and inks to my wish list. What a shame that they have cancelled one of your shows, they did this to Julia as well when you were away in California. Do we really have to wait until September to see you again. Have a lovely weekend.
